FUNDAMENTALS OF COMPUTER
Computer Definition:Computer is an advanced electronic device that takes raw data as input from the user and
processes these data under the control of set of instructions (called program) and gives the result
(output) and saves output for the future use. It can process both numerical and non-numerical
(arithmetic and logical) calculations.
A computer has four (4) functions:
a. Accepts data
b. Processes data
c. Produces output
d. Stores results

Input
Processing
Output
Storage

Input (Data):
Input is the raw information entered into a computer from the input devices. It is the collection of
letters, numbers, images etc.
Process:
Process is the operation of data as per given instruction. It is totally internal process of the
computer system.
Output:
Output is the processed data given by computer after data processing. Output is also called as

amount of work. Which a human being will take an entire year if he worked day and
time. It is capable of performing about three to four million simple arithmetic per second.
3. ACCURACY:- The word accuracy means exactness of result. The accuracy with which a
computer performs calculations or process data is very high. A computer never gives any
wrong information unless and until the user does not give the wrong data.
4. AUTOMATION:- A computer is much more than an adding machine is a calculator,
which requires human activity to press necessary keys for the operations to be performs
once the program is stored in the memory, the cpu for these instructions until it meets the
last logical instructions to terminate the job. Once the process begins, it continue without
the need for human interaction until completion of the work.
5. QUICK AND EASY ACCESS:- Computer with an inherient characteristics of
processing speed. Have made it possible to retrieve and analyze the data. With in a small
interval of time and also can perform a particular work continuously for hours without
any human interactions.
6. DELLIGENCE:- A computer does not suffer from fatigue bored or lakhs of
concentrations while performing tasks. If million of calculations have to be performed, it
will perform all calculations exactly the same speed and accuracy as first one.

History of computer:1. Computer history starts at 3000B.C by a device called ABACUS developed by Chinese
people. There are non conceptual changes.
2. At the 18^th century charless babbage developed two engines called differential and
analytical engines. This device has provisions for inputting data. Storing information,
performing arithmetic operations and printing out results. This provides a base for
modern computers; he is called the father of computer.
3. At the same time jacquard invented an automatic loom by using a device called punching
cards.
4. At the end of 19^th century Herman and james power designed a data processing
machine for processing both alphabetical and numerical data.
5. In 1946 Johnvon Neumann invented a high speed digital computer using vaccum tubes.
This system is used for counting purpose and this is the laboratory model in the world.
The concept developed by Johnvon Neumann is internally stored concept.

Task-3
Working with Mouse and Keyboard.
(a). Working with Mouse.
The computers mouse controls a graphical mouse pointer or mouse cursor on the screen. When you move
the mouse around by rolling it on your desk, the pointer on the screen moves in a similar manner. Roll the
mouse left, and the pointer moves left; roll it in circles, and the pointer mimics that action.
Here are some of the more basic mouse operations:

Point: When youre told to point the mouse, you move the mouse on the desktop, which moves
the mouse pointer on the screen to point at something interesting (or not).

Click: A click is a press of the mouse button one press and release of the main button, the one
on the left. This action makes a clicking sound, which is where this maneuver gets its name.
Clicking is often done to select something or to identify a specific location on the screen.

Right-click: This action is the same as a click, although the right mouse button is used.

Double-click: This one works just like the single click, although you click twice in the same spot
usually, rather rapidly.
This is most commonly done in Windows to open something, such as an icon. Both clicks must
be on (or near) the same spot for the double-click to work.

Drag: The drag operation is done to graphically pick up something on the screen and move it. To
do that, you point the mouse at the thing you want to drag, press and hold the mouses button
(which picks up the object), and then move the mouse to another location. When you move the
mouse (and keep the button down), the object moves. To release, or drop, the object, release the
mouse button.

Right-drag: This action is the same as a drag, but the mouses right button is used.
Many of these basic mouse operations can be combined with keys on the keyboard. For example,
Shift-click means holding down the Shift key on the keyboard while clicking the mouse.

(b). Working with Keyboard.


Whenever you use a computer, you will probably use a keyboard. The most common kinds is
referred to as a QWERTY keyboard after the keys on the top row of letters. It was invented by
C L Schools in the 1860s when he was working out the best place to put the keys on a manual
typewriter.
Follow these step-by-step instructions to help you get to know what your keyboard can do.
Step-1: Have a good look at your keyboard. The most important keys are labeled on the diagram
below:

Step-2: The main keys are the letter keys. When you type just using these, you get lower-case
print. However, if you hold down a shift key at the same time as you type, you will get UPPERCASE letters.
Step-3: If you make a mistake in your typing, theres always a remedy.
To delete a letter, place your cursor just after the letter and click. Then press Backspace briefly.
(or) place your cursor just before the letter, click and press Delete.

Step-4: Now try typing a sentence:

This is a good sentence to practice because it contains most of the letters of the alphabet.
Step-5: You can move the cursor along this sentence without deleting anything by using the
arrow keys:

Try moving the cursor backwards and forwards through your sentence.
Step-6: Now try using the number pad, if you have one.
To use this to type numbers, you have to press the NUM LOCK key. There may be an indicator
light at the top of the keyboard (or) on the Num Lock key itself to show that its on.

Step 7: You can also type using the numbers on the main keyboard. Youll find them on the row
of keys above the top line of letters.
Above these numbers are various symbols, which include , &, !. To use these, hold down
the Shift key while you type. So if you press 7 on its own, you get 7, but if you press 7 while
you hold down the Shift key, you get &.

Windows 7 organizes your files into folders on your hard drive. Folders can contain both
files and subfolders, allowing you to go as deep as you want in file structure and become as
organized as you want
User Files:
Microsoft windows 7 creates a series of libraries to store your personal data. You can find
your libraries by clicking on start menu and then clicking computer. Click on the libraries link
on the left:

Computer Fundamentals Lab Record

This will open the libraries on your computer. A library is not a real folder, its really a
collection of files and folders in different locations around your computer. This enables you to
store all of the music on your computer in a single library but in different locations across your
hard drive.
The libraries include Documents, pictures, music and videos.
Documents Library contains all the files created by default.
The files can be created by using Notepad, Word pad, MS Word, MS Paint etc.

Familiarizing with Recycle Bin


Theory:
When you delete a file in Windows 7, the file isnt deleted. Instead, Microsoft moves the
record pointing to the file into the Recycle Bin and stores it there until the Recycle Bin is
emptied. This allows you to easily recover files if you accidentally deleted them. Keep this in
mind if youre deleting sensitive files they may still be around on your computer somewhere.
(in fact, even once you remove them in the Recycle Bin, they arent really gone yet. A full
deletion/cleaning utility will permanently remove the files.)
When you open the Recycle Bin on your desktop, you will see a list of files and folders
you deleted.
The operations that can be done on Recycle bin are
1. Empty the Recycle Bin (Remove all of the files from the list and delete them
permanently).
Step 1: Right click on Recycle bin on desktop
Step 2: Click on Empty recycle bin.

BRANCH: MECH

Sorting is the process of arranging the worksheet data either in ascending or descending
order based on one or more fields.
You may want to sort by more than one column or row when you have data that you want
to group by the same value in one column or row, and then sort another column or row within
that group of equal values. For example, if you have a Department column and an employee
column, you can first sort by Department (to group all the employees in the same department
together), and then sort by name (to put the names in alphabetical order within each department).
You can sort by up to 64 columns.
Note: For best results, the range of cells that you sort should have column headings.
Procedure of sorting:
Step 1: Create the workbook as shown below. (The column Heading Row is Must)
Step 2: Select a range of cells with two or more columns of data, or make sure that the active
cell is in a table with two or more columns.
Step 3: Click on the Data tab, in the Sort & Filter group, click on Sort.
Step 4: Under Column, in the Sort by box, select the first column that you want
to sort. (Say Department)

Task-1
Enter Formula
Computer Fundamentals Lab Record

Page 148

AVANTHI INSTITUTE OF ENGG & TECHNOLOGY

BRANCH: MECH

Theory: Formulas are the bread and butter of worksheet and used to perform calculations. A
formula consists of special code which is entered into a cell. It performs some calculations and
returns a result, which is displayed in the cell. Formulas use a variety of operators and worksheet
functions to work with values and text. The values and text used in formulas can be located in
others cells, which makes changing data easy and gives worksheet their dynamic nature.
For example, you can quickly change the data in a worksheet and formulas works.
A formula can consist of these elements:
a. mathematical operators, such as + (for addition) and * (for multiplication)
Example : =A1+A2 add the values in cells A1 and A2.
b. Values or text
Example: =200*0.5 multiplies200 times 0.5
This formula uses only values, and it always returns the same result as 100.

c. Cell references (including named cells and ranges)


Example: =A1+C12 add the contents of cell A1 and C12
Worksheet functions (such as SUM or AVERAGE)
Example: = SUM (A1:A12) adds the values in the range A1:A12
Task-2
Entering Formula
Procedure:
Step 1: click on the cell
Step 2: Type = symbol
Step 3: write the formula using other cell addresses, operators and functions
Step 4: press enter key. (The result of the formula will be displayed in the cell)
Note: while entering the formula is being displayed in Formula Bar.

Computer Fundamentals Lab Record

Page 149

AVANTHI INSTITUTE OF ENGG & TECHNOLOGY

BRANCH: MECH

Task 3
Use cell References in Formula, mathematical operators and observe automatic updating of
function of Excel Formulae
Theory:
When a formula contains a cell address, it is called a cell reference. Creating a formula
with cell reference is useful because you can update data in your worksheet without
having to rewrite the values in the formula.
Procedure: To enter the formula manually
Step 1: Select the cell where the answer will appear (B3, for example).
Step 2: Type the equals sign (=)
Step 3: Type the cell address that contains the first number in the equation (B1, for example).
Step 4: Type the operator you need for your formula.
Example:-Type the addition sign (+)
Step 5: Type the cell address that contains the second number in the equation (B2, for example).
Step 6: Press Enter .The formula will be calculated, and the value will be displayed in the cell.
Step 7: If you change a value in either B1 or B2, the total will automatically recalculate.
Procedure to Error Correction and getting help from the system
Excel will not always tell you if your formula contains an error, so its up to you to check
all of your formula.
Example: - Assume that the formula entered in B3 without = symbol and enter key is pressed;
system will not show any error as show below:
Sometimes the system detects the errors and suggests you the corrections as given below:
Step 1: Assume that the formula entered with an error is as shown below:
Step 2: Press enter key, system automatically detects the error and suggests the correction as
shown below:
Step 3: Click on yes, the formula will be automatically corrected by the system and result will be
displayed.
Procedure: To create a formula using the point-and-click method:
Computer Fundamentals Lab Record

Page 150

AVANTHI INSTITUTE OF ENGG & TECHNOLOGY

BRANCH: MECH

Step 1: Select the cell where the answer will appear (D2, for example).
Step 2: Type the equals sign (=).
Step 3: Click on the first cell to be included in the formula (B2, for example).
Step 4: Type the operator you need for your formula. For example, type the multiplication sign
(*)
Step 5: Click on the next cell in the formula (C2, for example).
Step 6: Press Enter. The formula will be calculated, and the value will be displayed in the cell.
Procedure: To modify the formula
Step 1: Insert the cursor in the formula bar, and edit the formula as desired.
Step 2: Double-click the cell to view avd edit the formula directly from the cell.
Step 3: When finished, press Enter or select the Enter command.
Example: Assume that the formula in D2 is entered as B2 * D2
Double click the cell or select the cell and insert the cursor in the formula bar, modify it press
enter key.
Note: If you change your mind, use the cancel command in the formula bar to avoid
accidentally making changes to your formula.
Task 4
Observe automatic updating of function of Excel Formula
Theory: Sometimes it is required to place the same formula at many place just by changing the
cell addresses. In such case the user need not type the formula many times. Just type the
formula once and copy it to remaining places. System automatically changes the cell
addresses.
Procedure:
Consider an example of finding the total cost of each item in the following example.
Normally user has to go to each cell and type the above formulas, which is a tedious task. Instead
of that
Step 1: Type the formula in the first cell (say D2 and type the formula as = B2*C2)
Computer Fundamentals Lab Record

Page 151

AVANTHI INSTITUTE OF ENGG & TECHNOLOGY

BRANCH: MECH

Step 2: Select the first cell D2 and place the cursor at the right bottom corner till it change its
shape to block+ as shown below.
Step 3: Drag the mouse till all the cells D2 to D6 are covered and release the mouse
Note: now click on D5 the formula will be = B5 * C5, similarly for others also.

Creating design templates with the slid master


Theory:
PowerPoint 2007 comes with some great design templates which you can access by
clicking on the design tab. But sometimes these templates arent exactly what we need. Maybe
we want to brand our layout with a logo and a more relevant look and fee.
We could simple customize each slide we create, but it would be more efficient to create slide
templates that can be easily reused. This isnt hard or more time consuming, and will save us a
lot of time and effort.
The slide master is the part of power point that lets us create these design templates.
We can create a master look and feel for our slides, and then customize individual layout
templates for specific purpose such as a title page, a side-by-side comparison, or a large image
display.
Step 1: Open a new document. The presentation will be in normal view.
Change the theme to require theme
(Click design tab Under Theme Group Choose the Theme)
Open slide master view by click on view TabClick on slide master.
Click on viewNormal to go to normal view
Click on viewSlide master to go to slide master view.
You will see a set of slide with very minimal formatting in slide master view. It includes master
slide and layout slides.
Master slide This is the first, largest slide. Make changes here if you want them to apply to
every type of slide (title, image, text).
Layout slide These are the smaller slides below the master slide. Each has its own layout and
purpose, like displaying a title or a large image. Change made to a layout slide will not affect
other slides.
Step 2: Click on master slide to formatting master slide
Step 2.1: Change master slide background:
Click on view tabSlide MasterExpand Background StylesChoose the background
Note: Click format background for more options. Such as solid fill, gradient fill, or picture
texture fill or use a picture form you r computer, use the file button.
Step 2.2: Change the fonts click onClick on the slide master tab under edit theme group
expand font drop down listChoose from font sets recommended by power point.
Computer Fundamentals Lab Record

Step 2.3: Adding an image (To add Logo): Click on the insert tabclick pictureSelect a
picture from your computer.
Step 2.4: Choosing a color theme: click on the slide master tabUnder Edit theme group
expand color drop down listChoose from different color theme.
Step 3: Format layout slide (applies to individual slides)
Some of the most useful layouts are title and content, two content, blank and picture with
caption.
Simply customize each slide by editing it as you would a normal power point slide change made
on each layout slide will apply only to that layout. You can override the master slide styles for
example, if you would like the title slide layout to stand out with a red background, click on that
layout and change the background color. The rest of the layout will not change; they will still
retain the Master Slides background.
Step 4: Insert a title slide into a design templates
Click on Home Insert New slide Choose title slide.
(Now two title slides will exist in normal view)
Step 5: Insert footer in power point
Click on homeInsert foot in power point Click on insertheader and footerA dialogs box
appears, fill require contentsApply.
Step 6: Insert a note to power point presentation
Click on viewNotes masterType the note in the area displayed
Note: During the presentation, the presenter can see his notes by setting multiple monitors and
he can see on the main monitor only so that others cannot see it.
Step7: Save your template
Click on fileSave asChoose the save type as power point templateType the name as my
templateSave It will be saved in the my template.
Step 8: Once theme is these is created, you can it to create your presentation.
